Abstract: 
The study was carried out to examine the
effects of practical experience and sequential
skills on achievement in map reading among
secondary one pupils in Singapore. A total of
144 pupils in four secondary one (Express)
classes participated in the study. Each class
ws randomly assigned to one of the four
treatment groups, where two teaching
methods, i.e. practical learning and directteaching,
and two types of curriculum structure, i.e. hierarchical sequence and nonhierachical
sequence, were compared. The
experiment consisted of eight weeks of
teaching after which a post-test and a delayed
post-test were administered to establish
the effects of each treatment. Findings
showed that practical experience and
sequential skills in map reading would have
a positive effect on pupil performance and
retention of the acquired skills.
